Randy Rogers and wife Chelsea are in a disagreement. It seems Randy fancies the name “Rebel,” while Chelsea wants “Remy.” Either way, their new daughter is definitely getting an “r” name. Chelsea expects to give birth to the couple’s third daughter on May 19.

Rogers shared the good news during his time at SXSW 2017 in Austin. The band played the famed Grammy Block Party, an annual event at the Four Seasons for Grammy members. Every year, the Texas Chapter throws the party to showcase homegrown talent and entertain other members.

Rogers says everything looks good to go so far. Chelsea and Randy tragically lost a child in 2015. Rumer Rain Rogers passed away just six days after her birth. She suffered from a rare genetic disorder called nonketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH). Sadly, the disorder affects more than 65,000 children in the U.S. every year and has no cure.

But now the Rogers plan on welcoming Rebel or Remy to their growing family of girls. She’ll have two older sisters in Isabel and River. He joked that possibly “Randi” could be an option. Though we imagine that could lead to some confusion around the house.

And yes, Randy and Chelsea clearly have musical plans for their daughters. “I’m gonna have an all-girl band,” he jokes. “Make them do some punk rock or something.”

Rogers has some busy months ahead. He recently released “Tequila Eyes” as his next single from recent album Nothing Shines Like Neon. That album won over critics and fans alike with its emotional, traditional bent.

Rogers also recently went back into the studio to record new music. But he and the rest of the band plan on keeping whatever is in store close to the chest.

Rogers recently left his record label of 10 years, now producing projects on his own accord. He also announced a new artist management company back in April 2016 called Big Blind Management. With a third girl on the way, Rogers and Chelsea sure have their hands full!
